    Lab Zero is known for overachieving. Just look at Indivisible, overflowing with characters. They gave us 21 incarnations and are still going to add 14 more! Point is, I'm sure they want to keep all ports equal when Annie arrives in non-mobile Skullgirls in 2021. The only roadblock is the parent companies' (Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo) stores.

    Annie is super cool but not part of the Essential Three™ needed to complete the canon story mode.

    It's a good book, but all the Jazz Age lingo makes it hard to follow at times. Also, there is this hyperactive cyborg girl character that keeps coming out of nowhere and causing trouble every chapter. The audiobook read by Rich Brown is a huge plus!

    I was actually planning on making a post with speculation on some palettes for Annie+Sagan, since I made an outline PNG+palette editor PSD of their idle sprite from a screenshot I took from her trailer. I didn't post it though since I got nervous that I might put in the wrong thread >_>.

    hello, excuse me, but in the game wiki and on past art for skullgirls (also in the beowulf story) and Annie's indvisible patch on the right eye, but in your announcement a patch on the left eye. in principle, there is probably nothing serious in this error, but was it done by accident, or on purpose.

    Will there be a beta of Annie like you did with rift battles 2.0?

    YOU ABSOLUTE MAD LADS, YOU DID IT!!!!!:)

    I just KNEW that it was somehow going to be Annie. I mean come on, she plays an important part in Beowulf's story in 2nd Encore and at the end of Robo-Fortune's story, she's the one that was leading the charge against the "Mecha-Fortune" army. So it's safe to say that this was honestly a no-brainer.

    She is just AMAZING!!! Her design, move set, combos, attacks, everything being shown in the trailer is just superb. So, she's definitely coming out this year on mobile, is it okay to assume that it will be either November or December. Either way, can't wait, SUPER HYPED-UP.

    All of you have yet again done an outstanding job. Thank you so so much:);):);):);)

    One more thing, are you going to make an "Annie Forum" here on the site, cause I want to do another discussion about her possible pallets, please.

    Someone already did a discussion about her possible palettes (including me). But it could be nice

    Late to the thread, and few words to add, but really excited by this addition! Annie's one of those characters who really managed to capture my imagination in just a few cut scenes and am really glad I'll get the chance to be able to finally both play her and explore her story more.

    Yes! Like I was saying a few pages ago, up until now Annie has always been shown with a right eyepatch and unless Alex Ahad says Annie can switch up which eye is stored in Sagan's mouth, it looks like a mistake.

    In-game is it fine. It is natural for asymmetrical characters in fighting games have to deal with mirroring (unless you are Gill in Street Fighter III, who painted his body red and blue just so Capcom could show off graphical power of the CPS-3 board). But key art can't betray canon!

    Clearly the one posted in the OP must be a selfie she was taking in the mirror then!

    Thanks BallotBoxer, you gave me the idea of making Rikka as a palette :3

    I'm pretty sure that they aren't updating the PS3 and PS Vita versions on Skullgirls anymore

    I can't wait to play her! For 2nd Encore will she be playable on the beta build or no?

    How exciting! I know it was said there’s more details to come, but I expect that’s on character design and moves right? Are you guys gonna tell us about development and some challenges you faced, I saw something like that for squiggly and it was very interesting. Regardless, super excited and thrilled Annie’s coming to the game. This year too!!!!

    It will be a true blessing if her story mode also gets released the day she will be.

    I hope there's a little orphan Annie reference somewhere.

    It would also be interesting if she had a color palette or two that used crosshatch shading instead of cell shading, which would make her look like something out of a children's storybook, but I'm not sure if that's even possible.

    Updated the original post with a bunch of new questions. Here they are for convenience!

    WILL ANNIE (AND THE OTHER NEW MOBILE ANIMATIONS) BE ADDED TO THE DIGITAL ART COMPENDIUM?
    We are planning to make a full update to the Digital Art Compendium in the future featuring both Annie and all relevant Skullgirls Mobile-related content. Stay tuned!

    WILL ANNIE BE ADDED TO <X> VERSION OF 2ND ENCORE? WILL <INSERT THING> HAPPEN TO 2ND ENCORE?
    Unfortunately, we can’t speak to this at this time. We’ll have more information to share about the 2nd Encore release of Annie later this year.

    WILL ANNIE HAVE A JAPANESE DUB?
    Annie will launch on mobile with English only voice over. We hope to get full Japanese voice over in the future!

    WILL THIS MEAN THERE WILL BE 3 DAILIES ON A SINGLE DAY TO ACCOMMODATE ANNIE?
    We’ll be sharing more details about all Annie-related content as we get closer to her launch in the next couple of months!

    ANNIE'S EYE PATCH IS ON THE WRONG SIDE IN HER ART.
    Hazards of using the selfie cam on her phone…? We’ll make sure it's addressed. Thanks for keeping an eye out for us!

    WILL ANNIE RELEASE WITH AN ORIGIN STORY
    Every character in the game will eventually get their own Origin story, but Annie is not currently next in the queue. Only a matter of time, however! We have lots of exciting Annie lore to share.

    WILL YOU MAKE AN ANNIE FORUM?
    Done!

    https://forum.skullgirlsmobile.com/forums/annie.44/

    WILL THERE BE A BETA FOR ANNIE?
    We will not be having an Annie Beta for Skullgirls Mobile (similar to Rift Battles or Versus Mode). Keep an eye out for her in our next major update!

    HOW DO THE RECENT EVENTS WITH LAB ZERO AFFECT ANNIE'S RELEASE?
    We have released a full statement here that we encourage you to read:
